FPAS Transition to Qualified Pathway

28 July 2021

NSW FSA and FSD practitioners were recognised through a Transitional pathway until 30 June 2021. From 1 July 2021, only the Qualified pathway for accreditation will apply.

What does this mean for you?

From 1 July, 2021, the Transitional Accreditation pathway for NSW FSA and FSD will no longer be available and all new applicants MUST meet the Qualified Accreditation requirements. The Qualified Accreditation pathway will be the ONLY pathway available to applicants from that date.

Practitioners who hold a Transitional Accreditation for NSW FSA or FSD will have a period of four years dating either from the day they were accredited or 1 July, 2020, whichever is the later to meet the Qualified criteria, as detailed in the Fire Protection Accreditation Scheme (FPAS).
